'PlayStation Now' Coming to PC

'PlayStation Now' Coming to PC
Uncharted, God of War, and The Last of Us are among the more than 400 titles coming to Windows and Mac PCs.

(CCM) — In a post on its company blog yesterday, PlayStation announced the release of a new app that will bring its library of over 400 exclusive games to Windows and Mac PCs this fall. In the same announcement, the company also introduced its new DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor, a micro-USB key that will allow players to connect their controllers to their computers wirelessly. According to the post, the $24.99 device will "enable every feature of the controller you know and love: buttons, analog sticks, touch pad, light bar, motion sensors, vibration, and stereo headset jack — as long as the gaming application supports these features." Both the app and the device will begin their rollouts in Europe in September, with plans to expand to the United States and Canada shortly after. There has been no word yet on when the app is expected to reach Asia and Australia.

This announcement comes amidst a slew of new innovations being explored by Sony this year. In early March, Sony released new updates to its PlayStation 4 console, including the introduction of Remote Play, a streaming feature that makes it easy to control PS4 consoles from a computer. Later that month, the company announced the renaming of its entertainment division from Sony Computer Entertainment to Sony Interactive Entertainment Inc. as well as the formation of a new subsidiary called ForwardWorks Corporation. The Tokyo-based company, which began operations in early April, is focused on the creation and deployment of mobile-optimized games for Android and iOS devices.
